I Believe In The Goodness...

I am deliberately choosing to love.

I am choosing to focus on the "Helpers"...the men and women who rush in to save, attend to and bear witness to tragedy.

I am choosing to see all the goodness that exists.  I am not diminished by lighting my brothers and sisters candles.

I am choosing the path of peace.

I am choosing to extend my hand in fellowship.

I care about every living breathing thing on this planet.

My heart breaks in the face of tragedy.

I am comforted by the faith that lifts me up and moves me forward.

I do not and cannot make sense of the violence in Boston, Newtown, Afghanistan, Somalia, Chicago, New Haven.

I intend to cry at every loss.

I intend to pray for all.

I intend to walk in peace, justice and love.

I believe in the goodness of the world and those that call her home.
